Cornman Farms Cocktail Class: The Green Fairy

Absinthe is an anise-flavored herbal spirit with a long and tortured history. Strongly herb-flavored and often very high in alcohol, this spirit known as “the green fairy” was the drink of choice among the Bohemian set in Paris around the turn of the 20th century. Wrongly labeled as both a hallucinogenic and the cause of many social ills, Absinthe was subsequently banned in much of Europe and the United States for roughly a century. Recent changes in legislation on both sides of the pond have resurrected this intense yet delectable liquor. On Thursday, July 16, 7pm,  we will discuss the history of absinthe (and the wormwood it contains) while crafting three classic cocktails created around the previously-maligned spirit: the Asylum, the Death in the Afternoon, and the Corpse Reviver #2. The class includes instruction and discussion, three cocktails, tasty snacks prepared in the farmhouse kitchen, and recipes.
